No other weight class carries more intrigue and mystique than the heavyweight division. This is true for any combat sport, and the UFC is no different. This is where titans collide, where every man has the size and power to render an opponent conscious with a single punch. Fittingly, the champion not only holds the belt, but the title of “The Baddest Man on the Planet.”

Let’s take a look at the current division. Remember, you can bet on your favorite fighters at BookMaker.eu.
The heavyweight division might’ve been a bit stale for a few years, but it’s poppin’ off right now. Besides a likeable, dominant champ in Stipe Miocic, we’ve got a fresh batch of hungry young bucks looking to overturn the veteran regime at the top of the rankings. Though we’re still waiting for DC-Miocic to play out, all of a sudden there are some rad matchups to make for the division. Guys like Curtis Blaydes, Tai Tuivasa and Alexander Volkov are rising up the ranks - and they’re all under 30.
We can’t wait for Ngannou vs. Lewis at UFC 226. You know how sometimes when two talented strikers face off, those fighters respect each other so much they end up staring at each other for a few rounds? That’s not happening here. Headhunting is in both Ngannou and Lewis’ DNA, and they just so happen to be the most prolific KO artists in the divsion.
Curtis Blaydes just pounded out No. 2 Alistair Overeem and cemented his role as a title contender. He could definitely be next in line for a shot at the DC-Miocic winner, but don’t be surprised if he gets another fight first. You don’t see many big men with his blend of athleticism, knockout power and high-level wrestling. This kid’s gonna be a factor for a while.

The problem with trying to select the best UFC heavyweights in history is that most of them all had better days in other organizations. The greats most closely associated with the octagon would be Randy Couture, one of three men to win titles in two weight classes, former heavyweight champion Frank Mir, Cain Velasquez and Fabricio Werdum.
